The beauty is that to successfully balance in this pose you need both power and grace—without both, you are doomed to fall. The strength of your legs supports you as lift your body, but the easing into your chest is what creates the balance.
That image: Strength & Ease, Power & Grace…a Cliff note guide to the secret of life. Be strong, be vulnerable…know when to muscle in, but do it with kindness, with awareness of the size of the waves you make and those around you.
The creation of this piece awakened so much in me around my the joy I find in color. I had been sick with the flu and a few weeks away from my art. When I came back to the studio, at first I stared at my canvases with a sense of , “what now?” Well a few weeks away and here’s what.
From the depths of my happy places. My Strength. My Grace. I am the Master of my Sea.
Wishing you to find power and ease in your day~ Namaste.
